AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sunfield, a 2,400 acre new home development located just south of Austin, announced today it has been ranked in the Top 30 in mid-year sales nationally for master-planned communities (MPCs) by real estate consulting firm RCLCo. Sunfield sold 245 new homes the first half of the year, ranking it sixth in the state in new home sales, a 41 percent increase over this time last year.
“We are honored to have been ranked in the Top 30 in the highly coveted RCLCo ratings for top-selling MPCs,” said James R. Feagin, Chairman and CEO of Landmark Interests, the developer for Sunfield. “Sunfield has doubled its sales since we opened a year ago. Home buyers are attracted to this community because it is a trailblazer in resort living at an affordable price point. The amenities are unmatched in this price range and you won’t find anything like it in this market.”
Sunfield opened its hugely popular Lazy River Amenity Center this summer. The 1,000-foot lazy river winds through the community, which also features a lagoon pool, waterfall and activity pool. Other features of the new amenity center include over 25,000 square feet of pool deck, ample shade structures, picnic tables, open air pavilions and family grill stations with full access to Wi-Fi.
The ranking of RCLCo’s top-selling communities is based on total net new home sales as reported by each individual community. To be included, MPCs must be developed with a strong vision and comprehensive plan that guide development and unify the community. This is accomplished through distinctive signage, wayfinding, entry features, landscaping, and architectural/design standards that foster an environment of community.
As an established neighborhood, Sunfield currently has 1,200 homeowners with an expected 6,900 homes at build out. Fourteen new model homes are open in the development on Cherrystone Street overlooking the lazy river. Homes are priced from the high $190s to $400s and feature builders Centex, Pulte, Gehan Homes, CastleRock Communities, Chesmar Homes and William Lyon Homes.
Embodying the small-town charm of Buda, Sunfield is located just 15 miles south of Austin. As a master-planned community, Sunfield takes advantage of the natural beauty of the area by preserving the creeks, ponds, parks and trails while adding open air resort amenities to connect to the sustainable natural surroundings. Sunfield also offers a variety of outdoor resort amenities including a Junior Olympic lap pool, splash pool, shade structures, picnic pavilion with grilling stations, fishing ponds and miles of hike and mountain bike trails.
Sunfield’s location on I-35 and FM 2001 puts San Antonio, San Marcos, Dallas-Fort Worth and the rest of Texas in easy reach and is just 15 minutes from Austin Bergstrom International Airport.
